DPP Insists on Lwamafa and Group Refunding 50B

In retaliation to an appeal notice filed by the three former Ministry of Public Service officials challenging the order by Anti Corruption Judge Justice Lawrence Gidudu to refund 50bn shillings, viagra 100mg the Director of Public Prosecutions Mike Chibita has insisted that the jailed officials must refund this money.

The three officials Jimmy Lwamafa, pill Stephen Kunsa Kiwanuka and Christopher Obey were ordered by the court to refund the Shs. 50, part of the 88 billion they allegedly swindled in payment of social security contributions to ghost pensioners.

Lwamafa, the former permanent Secretary, Obey the former Principle Accountant and Kunsa the former commissioner pensions in the Public Service Ministry were on 11th/November 2016 convicted of syndicate corruption by the Anti-corruption court.

On top of this, Justice Lawrence Gidudu sentenced them to 5, 7 and ten years imprisonment terms.

Basing on the letter dated 5th/December 2016 addressed to the Registrar Court of Appeal, the DPP says since there is no order  staying the  execution of the Anti-corruption court  decree, the convicts’  case file should be transferred to the High court-execution division for purposes of recovering the said money.

Lwamafa, Obey and Kunsa were dissatisfied with Justice Gidudu’s decision and have since filed a notice in the court of Appeal challenging their conviction, sentences and the order to make good of the loss.
